These creatures of filth have escaped the EXIT?! I. AM NEXT LEVEL. MAD.
 
Four

"The Escape from Four" is the 16th episode of Battle for BFDI (which is renamed into Battle for BFB at the end of the episode), and the 47th episode of the overall series. It was released on March 24, 2020.[1]

Plot

Before the intro

The eliminated contestants are in the EXIT. Loser reads another entry in Donut's diary, as Pencil tells him he shouldn't read his diary, because everyone could hear him. However, 8-Ball says Loser can't hear any of them, so Pencil and Match stand up to hear better. The entry Loser reads is the one about the time he was factored into Four. Reaching the last entry in the diary, Loser declares he "needs more reading material", and he breaks out off his jawbreaker in a Four intro pose.

After the intro

Loser's return is positively received by the other eliminated contestants. Everyone is excited, but Liy isn't, though she quickly clarifies she wants to be together with Loser, outside EXIT. The eliminated contestants quickly set to do Liy's plan. Stapy in particular grabs a fridge and turns it upside down, causing Four to bulge.

Basketball comes over and asks Four to recover the dead contestants, and sees Four's bottom half bulging; she interprets this as Four suddenly becoming "pudgy", causing him to turn into a stick version of him and screech at her as she runs away.

It is revealed Four somehow killed Basketball off-screen, as she is amongst the recovered; Four announces Cake at Stake for Team Ice Cube!

Cake at Stake

39,850 people cast votes. Barf Bag and Bomby, with 1,802 and 2,592 votes respectively, are safe and get a speck of dust. Naily is also safe with 2,938 votes.

Meanwhile, the EXITors stack their retrieved objects to reach Four's mouth. Stapy's weight is noticeably taking a toll on the stack; Pencil suggests Loser take his place. Loser proceeds to stack the items Liy throws at him perfectly. The resulting stack is almost able to reach Four's mouth, but not quite.

Bracelety is ecstatic that she will be able to see Ice Cube and starts to hyperventilate, but Match tells her she needs to take a chill pill, but when Bracelety tells Match she is able to see Flower's new fashion trend, "Super-Slip Shoes So Blah", Match also starts to hyperventilate.

The resulting stack of items Loser had finished is barely able to reach Four's mouth. Liy suggests Pencil and Match be part of the stack, for they are the tallest.

It is down to Donut, Gelatin, and Spongy. Gelatin, in particular, takes a dismissing approach to this. When he is declared safe (4,558 votes), he does not get a speck of dirt; this is met by Gelatin whining. Donut is revealed safe (5,115 votes), and Spongy is out with a record 22,845 votes. Spongy proceeds to apologize to his team for his actions, stating he felt lonely.

Struggling to eliminate Spongy

Four struggles to get Spongy inside of him. The EXITors see this as an opportunity to get outside, but Pencil and Match do not want to do this. Loser and Stapy are out first. When Firey Jr. requests to go out, Stapy declines as Spongy is somewhat flammable. Firey Jr. did not like that.

Meanwhile, Four is still struggling to get Spongy in. Snowball is surprised that Four, usually capable of doing things, is struggling to do something. He calls over everyone else to watch Four's struggling. Bottle tells the audience that Spongy is the largest contestant to be eliminated, by seven times. Pie says that it is good to know.

Meanwhile, Loser and the others are now inside Spongy. Loser passes elegantly, but the others struggle to get through. Some time later, Loser and the others manage to pop out of Spongy. Everyone cheers for Loser's arrival, but Four gets 'next level' angry and starts to suck the remaining EXITors in; Bracelety in particular shouts for Ice Cube, who is taken aback. However, the other contestants stand up against Four and try to pull Spongy outside. Stapy is next to fall in. Foldy tries to save her best friend, only to fail.

Meanwhile, something flies towards Earth at a million miles an hour, uttering "Hi guys!"

The EXITors fall back into Four's stomach. While falling Stapy says he has seen the error in not letting Firey Jr. pass through Spongy, and grants him his "long overdue permission" to do so. Firey Jr. cheers and jumps into Spongy, who starts to burn. Gelatin asks Spongy that how could he be in pain; Spongy tells him he is "really hot", which Gelatin mistakes for his self-confidence increasing. Firey Jr. then realizes what Stapy meant by "flammable", and jumps out, apologizing for physically harming Spongy.

Meanwhile, the fire reaches EXIT's inner wall, and by extension Four. After a brief phase of Mandelbrot folding, inside Four's eye, we see the word 'FIRE' echoing in his mind. He is then seen in a hallucinatory red background and in pain. X comes in and offers Four an orange juice box to make him feel better, though Four does not respond.

While Four is distracted, the other contestants have managed to pull Spongy out, but Four starts to chase him and Loser in front of a group of recommended characters to send them to the EXIT.

The arrival of Two

The creature seen earlier falls from the sky, in front of Four. Four is mad at it and tells it to be "with other fans". However, the entity ignores Four and turns to the others, asking them if they are "tired of battling for a dumb prize". Taco tells it that they are battling for A BFDI, telling it the BFDI is "awesome". When the entity asks her if the prize is truly awesome, Taco is not sure.

The entity, Two, proceeds to show Taco its powers, lifting up the Bathrooms to reveal a tall skyscraper underneath. Taco and Eraser are truly amazed by this show of power. However, Golf Ball and Tennis Ball are skeptical, saying that they "shouldn't trust this Two thing". When Golf Ball asks out loud where Two came from, what his motives are, and he would be a qualified host, Pie tells her she does not know the answers for Four. Pie then snides her further, saying that she built a rocket to obey Four. Bottle confides in Two, saying it is "safe".

Two further demonstrates his powers by ”opening” Yoyle Mountain (with the large pole to the summit on top), and taking out magma which he does tricks with, but a small bit lands in Bottle. She says it "tickles," but soon afterward shatters due to the immense heat, something that Pie doesn't like. Two proceeds to move a nearby forest. Two makes an announcement: if contestants join his game, the winner gets his power.

Creation of TPOT

Entranced by Two's offer, a lot of contestants switch over to Two's game. Tree is not convinced of Two's ability to move forests (as he is technically a forest, and could therefore just walk), so the latter alters the Sun into a spiky ball, which he soon afterward uses to hit Four. Deeming it "impressive as bark," Tree decides to switch over. Pillow says that bark isn't impressive, making Tree shush her. Four is quickly losing contestants to Two's new game, including Lollipop.

Trying to convince his last few contestants, Four reminds them about A BFDI, telling them it's "world-famous", but Ruby tells him BFDIs are "so last year". Four is hurt by that statement, so he reluctantly upgrades it to a BFB which seems to be an Inception-style video. Ruby and Gelatin are entranced by this BFB (Gelatin beat-boxes).

As the rest of the contestants checks the BFB out, Fanny tells everyone to stop, and speaks out against what Four just did, telling them she and everyone else entered the competition to win a BFDI, which is now impossible as it is now a BFB. This convinces all but 13 of the remaining contestants on Four’s side. Taco is interested in the BFB; Book approaches her and holds no grudge, as she lets her compete in Four's game and is not forcing her to stay with her. Book says they will catch up when the game is back together. This makes 14 contestants on Four’s show.

Even Bottle goes to Two's game (saying that given the choice, he would happily abandon him), and so does X (who initially offers him an apple juice box but Four interprets it as X wanting to leave to co-host Two's show). Gelatin calms Four down, telling him he will always respect the value of his BFB (then beat-boxing straight afterward, which annoys Four).

The competitions begin!

Two is excited to host his 40 contestants in his Power of Two. When Two asks everyone if they had made their final decision, Loser tells him to wait, for he had not taken Donut's diary from him, as he needed new "Reading material". The contestants had made their final decision; Two zaps Four's contestants off elsewhere. His remote also restores every contestant to how they started, meaning Woody is back to his normal size, restored from the orange color, and his dent is gone. Taco and Spongy have also lost their burn marks.

Two addresses his contestants, asking them if they are ready to battle for "limitless power". They all are, but a group of Recommended Characters asks him if they are able to. Two decides to let one in, with a viewer vote (as suggested by Yellow Face).

A list of eligible characters is shown.

Stinger

Taco walks up to Four, asking if the show will be okay since they just lost over half their cast. With over half the contestants gone, Four announces that BFB will advance to its Final 14. A release date for BFB 17 is shown, April 17, and one for Battle for Dream Island: The Power of Two episode 1, "some time after that".

Goofs

  • In the scene with the contestants walking to Four to watch him struggle at something, Rocky's walking animation always overlaps Clock's body.

Continuity references

  • Match said it's her break time when Liy told her to climb up the stack. This is a reference to her break time in "It's a Monster".
  • Tree said "Zhh!" in response to Pillow saying bark isn't impressive, a reference to the "tree sounds" Bubble made in "The Long-lost Yoyle City".
  • In Camera's audition, the footage they are playing is faint sounds from the beginning scene in "Welcome Back".
  • Yoyle Mountain has its pole to the top, a reference to BFDIA.
  • Woody does his BFDI scream in Scissors' audition, which is also a reference to "The Reveal", when Naily and Saw injure him offscreen.
